BOUNTIFUL, Utah — A pair of cougars were spotted Friday on a Bountiful home’s doorbell camera.

This video was submitted by the Russell family, who said they were watching the Utah-Oregon game Friday night at their home near Mueller Park when they got a notification from their Ring doorbell.

The big cats ran away when another family member pulled into the driveway.

“We decided not to invite them in … figured they must be BYU fans,” said a member of the Russell family.
